School Leavers' Toolkit

Education Support Services, University of Otago has been contracted by the Ministry of Education to design, develop and deliver a programme of support for teachers and school leaders to learn about the School Leavers Toolkit. We will support teachers and school leaders to understand what value the Toolkit can provide, to know how to select and use Toolkit resources and integrate these resources sustainably into their local curricula.

Workshops

Term 3 - School Leavers' Toolkit workshops (Years 7-13) being held nationally in Term 3 are now available.

The School Leavers’ Toolkit workshops aim to provide key influencers in the lives of rangatahi/students with tools including financial capability, civics education, key work place competencies and personal wellbeing that support the aspirations of both rangatahi and whānau with the changing future of education, training and employment.

As the PLD is contracted by the Ministry of Education, the workshops will have “no enrolment cost”.
